Online Summer Gateway

gateway opener

If you’re considering studying for a degree this autumn, but perhaps not sure you have the skills or confidence, this course could be ideal. You do not require any qualifications, it’s free, and you can study online.

This short course, taking just three hours per week for five weeks, covers topics such as food, health, education, society. On successful completion you will have a guaranteed interview to study on either our degrees this autumn, including part-time BA Hons Social Studies, full-time 2+2 Degree Pathway, and part-time Foundation degree in Early Childhood.

The course is only open to people in our local community who do not have a degree level qualification.

You will meet and work with others who will be embarking on a similar journey to your own, in an online environment designed for adult learners.

Hear from our student

I started my degree at the age of 44 and I will be 49 when I graduate; proving it is never too late to go back into education. Sure, it is challenging and yes it can be stressful at times; but it is also extremely rewarding.
